Earlier this year, a brand new jailbreak team appeared and produced what Taig appeared to have been unable to do – an iOS 8-8.1.2 jailbreak for Mac users. The Taig jailbreak was released only for Windows users and, although the team said they were working on one for the Mac, it never materialised. Instead, those who wanted to jailbreak were forced into using a workaround and installing a virtual PC to run Windows 10 technical preview.

PP are the third new team to appear in the last year, all three of whom originate from China. Evad3rs have disappeared completely from the jailbreak scene and it’s looking likely that we will be relying on China to produce our jailbreaks from now on. All three of the recent jailbreaks have been tested as extremely stable and some of the easiest jailbreaks to install. However, if, for some reason you want to remove it from your device, there are two ways to do it. First, if you are still running iOS 8.1.2 and want to install the jailbreak, you can the link below to download it:
How to Remove the PP Jailbreak :
Method 1 – Update your iOS Device
Perhaps the simplest way to get rid of the jailbreak off your device is to update to iOS 8.2 :
- Open Settings
- Tap on About
- Tap on Software Update
- Follow the onscreen instructions
- Your device will be updated to the latest firmware version
Method 2 – Restore your iOS Device
If you have a 16 GB device you may not be able to update using the OTA method. The alternative is to restore using iTunes:
- Download iOS for your specific device
- Connect your iOS device to your PC or Mac and open Tunes
- Back up the data on your device
- Hold down the SHIFT [ Windows ] or OPTION [ Mac ] key and click on Restore in iTunes
- Find the IPSW you downloaded and click on it.
- Agree to the restore and iTunes will put your device on iOS 8.1.3, removing the jailbreak in the process.
Please don’t forget that there is no current jailbreak for iOS 8.1.3 and, should you restore to the firmware, you will be unable to jailbreak. The next public jailbreak is expected to be for iOS 8.2, which is due for release anytime now, most likely on March 9th when Apple holds their special media event.
